Beach then WOD, BOOM!
Went down to the beach with some of my crossfit girlies today. Two of them wodded before we went down the shore (wish I knew they were doing that because I wouldve loved to WOD before laying out in all that sun). Me and one of the girls wodded after we got back. The beach was nice, sun was beaming, and many drunk girls to make fun of lol. Wodded at 8pm and todays WOD was the “Filthy...

So I had this guy join me for a workout on Saturday. The workout was 10 kettlebell swings 70/55 and 5 bar muscle ups 10 rounds for time with a 25 minute cap. 70 pounds was the kettlebell weight for men and 55 pounds for women. If you couldn’t do the bar muscle ups the progression was 10 pull ups and 10 dips. Ok so this guy was able to do strict pull ups and coach had him doing 55 pound...

Just a Thought
Whenever I go and have me time (mani/pedi) they always the cooking channel on. So now that I’ve been paleo for about a year now when I watch these shows my stomach is doing flips from seeing the amount of butter, sugar, salt, etc that they use while cooking. I am not even eating the stuff and I can feel the effects of it as if I am. I think it would be just dandy if there was ever a paleo...
Going skydiving in 2 weeks!!!!
55lbs aint no Joke
Love my coach and his continued faith and belief in me and my capabilities. Today’s workout was intense and different for us. It was 10 rounds of 10 kettlebell swings 70/55 and 5 bar muscle ups. Since I cant do my muscle ups the progression was 10 pull ups and 10 dips. Fair enough, it’ll help us get strong enough to eventually do a muscle up. I usually do my kettlebell swings with 35...
The people I work out with are ABSA-FREAKING-LUTELY AMAZING!!! They know where I have come from, what my weaknesses are and where I am now, which makes it that much more special when people compliment me on the hard work I put into my workout. It’s that much more meaningful because they know how much it took for me to get to where I am today. I am forever grateful to my wonderful crossfit...
This is amazing! →
This woman truly describes someone who’s got heart and doesn’t quit when the going gets tough. She did this entire workout (20cal row and 30 burpees not shown) with a dislocated right shoulder. She didn’t finish the workout, but my god she did’t stop until the clock ran and she had no choice but to stop. AMAZING! This video brought me to tears, it’s what crossfit is...

So I got on the scale today and I am back up to my heaviest weight to date of 110 pounds! Woohoo!! Now that the celebrating is over this time is crucial for me to break passed this weight. Oh boy, one step closer! I hope *biting my nails* I hope.
Crossfit on the Brain
All this week I have had nothing but crossfit on the brain. I dream of bars, weights, and racks. I day dream of deadlifts, power cleans, and snatches. Its been crazy, and I’m taking this as a sign that what I want to do with crossfit is what I should be doing and that’s to train hard. I want to be somebody one day, I hope everyone gets to know the girl who started out crossfiting at...
A Small Victory
A small victory but a victory nonetheless. After being at the Northeast Regional Tryouts I came to the big realization that 1. I can totally be there one day and 2. I have a lot of work to do. With that said today’s workout was “Nate” my coach’ s favorite WOD and one involving muscle ups and handstand pushups, two of the most difficult moves (at least for me) in crossfit. ...
Day 1 of my new experiment
So I decided that I needed to slow myself down during certain workouts. Today’s WOD was 3 rounds for time of 50 double unders and 25 wallball shots “2 for 1” I did this WOD with a 20lb vest on. There was a 20 minute time cap, I was able to do the double unders but “2 for 1” wallball shots was a little difficult so I did regular ones. It was rough but I managed to get...

My Gears are Grinding
I’ve got a million thoughts running through my head and I have a lot of work to do if I want to get to where my mind sees me going in a few years. I watched amazing athletes compete this weekend. I had so many emotions running through me this past weekend, I was very anxious and excited for the most part. After watching all this amazingness my new training shall begin. I got to talk to...
I don’t call what I do exercising, I call it training, and when people ask what I’m training for, I tell them life
Anonymous asked: What macro ratios do you recommend for someone who is trying to recomp (like what you did, maintained weigh pretty much, but lost inches/gained muscle)? I need guidlines, but I'm not really sure what to as far as diet goes. I can eat clean, but I don't know what macros I should aim for.
Ask is open for the rest of the night until I fall...
it-could-be-sweet asked: I like what your description says about being on a journey and on the path to balance. Balance is something I am really, really working hard to find. It is so much easier said than done!

Bad, bad, and then horrible!
I worked out yesterday and was too sore to even finish the workout. Back squat for 3 rep max and I only got through my second working set. Today was “Fran” and of course I had to do it but I wasn’t feeling 100% I took my time and went through each thruster one at a time. The pull ups actually felt great but when I got back to the bar to start my set of 15 thrusters it hurt like...
What to do?
So I want to take pictures, video, and do the workout myself tonight. Not quite sure how to go about making it all happen but I will make it all happen :) I think maybe I should go and take video during the 5pm class, do the workout at 6pm and recover during our on-ramp at 7pm and take pictures at 8pm. Yea looks like thats the plan for tonight. It’s a benchmark workout and I’ve never...

I have a date tonight, I'm taking full advantage...
I need to drink more water, I barely had a bottle of water today and this is NO BUENO! I don’t know what it is but it’s very easy for me to neglect drinking water. Ugh, it’s annoying and I see the negative side effects of not drinking enough water, lots of headaches. BOOOOOO!
We all know my love/hate relationship with “FRAN” and tomorrow the b%#*@ is going down! AGAIN! Beast Mode!
What do you get when you mix a bunch of paleo eating crossfitters in a room with unlimited tequila, beer, and karaoke for 2 hours??? DRUNK EPIC AWESOMENESS and taking over their karaoke lounge area and making it our own club :)
Taking it up a notch!
We recently had a strength WOD and even though I set a new PR for myself I still wanted more. I’ve been told over and over how strong I am for my size and I am always ecstatic to hear it. It’s time to take it up a notch and start throwing up some big numbers. In my free time I am going to start focusing on form and perfecting it as best I can. I want to hang with our beasts and really...
